    The School of Performing Arts brings together students and faculty who share their passion for the arts and provides opportunities for creativity, scholarship, and real world experience.

    Our dedicated faculty members are seasoned professionals who are deeply connected to the arts community. They are focused on helping students reach their dreams and aspirations and offer extensive professional expertise and networks. The department is extremely influential in the Fargo-Moorhead arts community, through active faculty involvement in professional music and theatre groups. Every year the department sponsors exceptional student performances, nationally recognized visiting artists and several community outreach events.

    Our graduates enjoy rich and varied careers in theatre, music, education and arts industries. The department is a vibrant community of passionate artists who provide immersive and collaborative hands-on learning combined with one-on-one mentorship in the classroom, the studio, on stage, and on- and off-campus performance opportunities.

    Students benefit from a variety of vocal and instrumental ensemble opportunities such as Concert Choir, Wind Ensemble and Jazz Combos, and private lessons for voice, instruments and composition. Students will grow professionally and personally through involvement in the University Theatre Series and The Straw Hat Players.

    The School of Performing Arts honors tradition while embracing innovation to deliver rigorous and progressive programs that help our students realize their potential as passionate leaders in their creative work and to develop their talents into a career—and life—in the world of the arts.
